Worn Out Batteries

By Phyllis Naegeli
1     "I need new batteries for my video game," Brandon said, making a beeline for the display.
 
2     Mom raised her eyebrows and tried to maneuver the cart into the tight area. "Again?"
 
3     "Yeah. I couldn't get it to work on the way to school today."
 
4     "Do you know what size batteries you need?"
 
5     "They are double As," said Brandon, picking up a package of eight batteries.
 
6     Mom walked over to the display. At the top of the display was a sign that read, "April 3rd is CHECK YOUR BATTERIES DAY." "Hmm," said Mom. "That's today!"
 
7     A store clerk walked over to Mom and Brandon. "Can I help you find something?"
 
8     "I think we found what we need," said Mom. "I just need to remember what other types of batteries I might need."
 
9     "Well, let me know if I can help you," said the clerk. Then he turned and left.
 
10     "Why do you need other batteries?" asked Brandon.
 
11     Mom pointed to the sign on the display. "Here's a list of items that we should check to be sure the batteries work," said Mom.
